“They could probably use the reminder”- Millie Bobby Brown Once Spoke About Online Bullying at 2018 MTV Awards

Millie Bobby Brown quickly learned the cost of fame at the mere age of 11 when she broke out on the screen as Eleven. Throughout her teen years, she was targeted, bullied online, and even had to face creepy sexual advances from grown men. Only last year, the 18-year-old found herself in another controversy.

TikTok star Hunter Ecimovic claimed that he had dated Brown when he was 20 and she was 16. Apparently, Hunter was staying with the teen and her family while they were dating. He further claimed that Brown performed some sexual acts for him when she was underage. This was just one example of bullying that the Stranger Things star has had to face, but she has always been quite vocal about bullying. Years back, she took the opportunity to speak about it during an awards acceptance speech.

At the 2018 MTV TV Awards, Millie Bobby Brown won the award for Best Performance in a Show for Stranger Things. While it was a great night for the teen, she took it as an opportunity to speak her mind about cyberbullying. Although she couldn’t attend the award show, she sent a pre-recorded video message.

In the clip, Brown sarcastically reminded her haters that they can keep quiet if they have nothing nice to say. She further encouraged other victims of bullying to DM her on Instagram if they need someone to remind them of their worth. 

Since I know there are many young people watching this, and even the adults, they could probably use the reminder that I was taught: if you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it. There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate it,” she said.

The Enola Holmes star’s speech came following a cyberbullying scandal that forced her to delete her Twitter account. A slew of anti-gay memes attributed hateful comments about LGBTQ to her. The teen was bombarded with hateful comments. 

After several years of enduring death threats and cyberbullying, Brown checked into therapy. She took some time to heal and now she stays off social media for good
